This is George's favorite buckle. The snakes and the color of turquoise both remind him of the waters off the coast of his native Oregon. Both are symbols for water in the Zuni religion and knowing this George daydreamed of surfing in the ocean off of Costa Rica when his Grandfather gave it to him.
